I hope everyone had a great weekend! Ours was packed with cactus, brush, and tractors while we got our lot cleared getting ready to build our new house. We worked all day Sunday and there’s still so much more to do. It’s going to be well worth all the hard work in the end. Especially knowing WE did it. 🙂  I’m getting more excited as we get closer to FINALLY breaking ground!
About this look:
Since the weather is in-between seasons right now I paired fringe, suede, and a (borderline) tank together. I love the bright colors in this flowery top, especially paired with my blue aviators. Bright colors always remind me of the warmer months. 
Excuse my white arms, I can’t wait to have a tan to wear with this top!
I’m also loving how chunkier heels are in! I don’t know about you but I don’t do well in platforms! These have the perfect chunk of a heel for me, I’m also mildly obsessed with booties. The open toe and suede together allows them to easily be transferred into the warmer months.
Happy St. Patty’s Day! Don’t forget your green!

So what exactly is a “balayage”?

Balayage

I’m sure you are seeing everywhere the new trend of “balayage”. The truth is it is not new, it is super popular and the results are trending right now. Everyone wants a more natural look to their face and hair at the moment. At the New York fashion show they were showing a lot of seventies come back and boho looks (the modern hippie). So in order to get this look (a more natural one) I would be more worried about having the perfect braid and how my color looks in that braid and curls than having perfectly stacked highlights. 
If you are wanting Balayage you are wanting a “sun-kissed” look at that. You want to look like you just got back from The Caribbean and your hair is glowing because the sun has naturally lifted certain spots. A good stylist is able to use their eyes and place the color where they think it will accentuate the best features on you. 
Balayage is also great for you if you are not wanting such a high maintenance color. I know not everyone has the time to come into the salon every 4-8 weeks. Basically you just need to come back to get this look touched up if you are wanting it brighter, more of it, or just to add a second color to it maybe. 
I love doing balayage because this is where my inner artist comes out and I pick and choose which pieces get lightened and how much each piece actually gets lightened. Whether your skin tone radiates with a honey blonde or a Venice beach platinum blonde.
If you look up the definition of balayaging it will tell you it’s a highlighting technique that is performed by free hand painting on the hair verses precise placement of the highlights. Like you would see in foils. There are so many different ways to do this. Some stylists may just use their hand and a brush, they may use a skinny long board or paddle, I’ve even seen stylists use cotton and saran wrap. Stylists may call it different too… Sometimes I call them “baby lights” or “custom color”.

This is where we, as stylists, get to use our creativity and do what we do best and create each client’s individual look for them.
Below I’ve put some of my work to show what Balayage or some baby lights can do for you.

Introducing Pastels

Introducing Pastels

|| Shirt – Similar, Similar || Jeans – Similar || Shoes – Macy’s || Statement Necklace – Similar ||
Yesterday I actually, as you can tell, had a photographer. A.K.A my Mama :)! It helps so much when you have someone to help. Not that it’s less awkward walking through the park posing but it’s getting a lot easier. Ha! 
I mixed pastels with black today to help introduce spring. I couldn’t find this exact shirt for you because I got it on the clearance rack at J Crew Factory for $10. But I did JUST get it, so I’m sure if you go they may still have some. 
I love my toothpick jeans from J Crew, I will definitely be buying more. Denim is so hard for me to shop for so I get super excited when I find a pair I like. I used to have quite a bit more muscle in my thighs, zero booty, and a smaller waist. So I would always feel like I had the “poopie pants” look by the end of the day and I needed a belt because they are so tight on my thighs I can’t go down a size to fit my waist. I also like the “real” denim feel not the stretchy (those are called Jeggings). So… maybe I’m just too picky but I’ve seen a lot of people with similar bodies so tell me where your favorite places are to buy your denim. These toothpick jeans do not get baggy on me, nor do I feel like I need a belt.
Yesterday’s weather was so pretty here in Fort Worth. We had some mad fog in the morning but after that the sun actually came out and I got to meet my Ray Ban’s again. Click here to see them.
And if you saw the camel on my instagram I got to go play with some interesting animals yesterday. Including Lemurs, Camels, Deer, and some Puppies of course.
Thanks for reading!
